Animoto {Presentation Creator}

Animoto is a super fun tool that I discovered in one of my graduate classes. It basically combines pictures, text, and music to present information. I think that it is a great way for students to introduce themselves to a class.

This is also a fun way for students to do biography presentations on someone that they read a book about. They can combine pictures of them with facts about their life to show their classmates who they are and why their life was worth studying.

One of the best parts of Animoto is that the link to the video is accessible online. This is way easier as a teacher to pull up everyone's presentations than to put flash drives in your computer.


It could also be fun to share the links with parents of a presentation that you have put together about an activity that you did in class or of a field trip that you went on! The possibilities are endless.

Try it out & let me know what you think,

**If you want to have your students try out Animoto, download this tool that walks them through step by step directions on how to create their first video presentation.
